I'm all for differences of opinion. And that is why I support cropping and docking so strongly. If I like the docked look, thats great! If you don't much care for it, thats great too! But most people who don't like cropping want to take that option away from eveyone else. It's like saying you don't like the color blue, so lets make it so no one can use blue.
I also would like to see kennel club standards allow both visions, and not favor one over the other in the ring.
What it all boils down to is this: We agree to disagree. There is absolutely no reason to make a law pro or anti docking/cropping. As for it harming the dog. Nope. No worse than desexing your dog. And just like desexing it must be cared for properly until healed. Do not judge the procedure by people who fail to care for their dog. Should we do that, all things would be banned.
Close-mindedness is how Pit Bulls and other good dogs got banned. So all I ask is that you worry of the animals well being only. And let personal choices be just that, a choice the caring owner makes.
